We laid to rest our dear Grandma today.
Sent her off to heaven in her best dress today.
And we gathered,
and celebrated her life;
Our beloved Grandma,
mother and wife.
And after the final words were said,
and after the final song was led,
we lingered together
a bit longer together
over heaping plates of barbecue and iced tea.
And to the last one of us we did all agree
that even though the meat was a tasty blessing,
it couldn't hold a candle
to Grandma's homemade Thanksgiving turkey and dressing.
We'll miss you Grandma.
Ninety-seven years went by too quick.
